Stenocaecilius casarum

Stenocaecilius casarum
San Antonio, Bexar County, Texas, USA
October 5, 2017
Size: 2.3 mm (body)
Size head-wing tip: 3.4 mm
I found it inside of apartment. I probably brought it in with some plants, or maybe it came inside through open balcony door.
ID based on BG images and the key found on BG info page: "The elongated eye shape and dark mark through the frons and postclypeus are diagnostic."
The dark spot to the end of the abdomen is a frass (the last three pictures with ventral view show the process - before and after)
